“Measuring the oceans” is the basis for the understanding of any oceanographic process and to improve prediction capabilities. However, the efforts to collect the data are worthless if good quality and metrological traceability are not assured.
This Special Issue welcomes papers dealing with new developments in the fields of oceanographic observations, from sensors to data management.
Improvements on observation platforms and measuring devices and sensors, calibration techniques for in situ and remote-sensed measurements, definition of reference standards and sampling handling guidelines, as well as results from intercomparison exercises are of great interest.
Papers addressing methodologies for harmonizing and blending data collected from a wide variety of sensors and platforms and those obtained from numerical models, the definition and test of metrics for the assessment of ocean model performances, and new tools for data presentation and dissemination are also welcomed.
This Special Issue hosts selected papers from the “2019 IMEKO TC-19 International Workshop on Metrology for the Sea”, but it is open to any other contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
